Pulau Keramat is a sovereign nation within Malaio, bordering Onekawa-Nukanoa, Zanzali, and the nations of South Ochran to the north, sharing a maritime border with Ankat, Ayvana, Jhengtsang, and The Daitoa Republic. It is the Xth largest nation in the world, and the largest nation in Malaio. The current day Archipelago is the birthplace of the N'nhivara and Asalism faiths.
Pulau Keramat identifies as a confederated oligarchical republic, with each of the respective six nations that make up the confederacy separating power and executive decision making to both their own leaders, and the overarching Dewan Emas, a council that is elected through both technocratic exams inspired by the Daitoa republic, and standard tiered voting practice, with re-election occuring every five years, at staggered results.
Pulau Keramat is one of the more influential states within its region, holding enormous economic importance to the Ozeros, Malaio, and southern Ochran due to its important location at the mouth of the Ozeros Sea, its development in re-exporting goods to various political identities, and serving as a point of collaboration for socialist and communist markets to exchange into capitalist markets, facilitating exchanges and ensuring important in such divisions. The current state identifies itself as holding a 'Socialist-Oriented Market Economy', and thus finds steady and stable interactions with various states regardless of their own systems of governance. This is facilitated primarily through quasi-state-owned organizations such as the Vespanian Exchange Institute. The confederacy itself has enacted policies and such 'emas' councils with responsibility over healthcare, infrastructure, and environmental policy, in contrast to each of the individual member states establishing separate judicial, educational, and social welfare policies; albeit many of these follow in similar trends to one another.
Pulau Keramat is a founding member of the Association of Ozeros Nations, Kiso Pact, and Four Rising Nations Summit, and has happily embraced membership with the Harmonious Covenant of Ochran, with attempts to serve as a facet of communication between the various regions in both political standard, economic relay, and socio-cultural exchange. These connections have resulted in several harbor cities in Pulau Keramat boasting enormous international populations and facets of cultural exchange- and marking an economic extension of engagement that has allowed for economic complexity to grow extensively in recent years.
Pulau Keramat has earned an international reputation for being a home to an extensively diverse community, with several official languages, and predominant faiths that derive from indigenous ethnic groups, resulting in the Pulaui identity being a difficult moniker to place in any one facet. The extent of the Atthuna Script serving as a parent to many of the languages.

The moniker Pulau Keramat came to first discussion in the early 20th century during the first discussions of unification amongst the various states that made the archipelago. It was under the ratification of the first Dewan Emas that the confederated name would be in use for inference to their collective political body, with it's direct transaltion being that most close to 'The Miraculous Islands'. This name is very closely similar to many of the native linguistic groups, despite scipture differences, and as such, was not difficult to find agreement upon in establishment.
Habitation of the archipelago in proto-civilization groups was rather unique due to the movement of two separate groups into the region, reaching the archipelago and peninsula and approximately the same time; with migrant patterns arriving both from following the East Scipian-North Malaio coastline, as well as those arriving from Southern Ochran. Because of this, a unique pattern of linguistic origin and tracing seems to have integrated and spread into itself in the East Ozerosi Language Groups, linking together the Malaio and Ozerosi landmasses in how they intermingled at the Archipelago. Settlement of the area ties itself to being as early as the 2000s BCE, with some contest asseting some cultures could have even been developed prior. These would identify themselves as the bronze age civilizations and cultures; however no major kingdom emerged during this period, given current historical analysis.
The modern Pulaui peoples derrive themselves from several ancient centres, linked to the deviant states that formed the unified confederacy in the early 20th century. Similar to the agriculutral revolution that allowed for early civilization to rise, the larger islands and their respective, rich river environments, better allowed for early access to agricultural habits; one that would be marked by an emphasis on coastal culture, rather than some unfruitful efforts in complete domestication of inland jungle areas.
Unlike much of conventional history, analytical recollection of the Archipelago separates itself into a comparison of islandic interaction and diffusion of cultures, with the last centuries of the iron age bleeding into ancient civilization, because of the emergance of early kingdoms that developed independently and in separate interaction with one another, often in ways that kept the archipelago divided. The radical shift in environmental unity and interactions that came with the Tahamaja Empire unifying the archipelago under a singular political entity for the first time in history. As such, relationships and developments afterwards were impacted by the diffusion of technology, language, and economic unification, in the utilization of common currencies, writing systems, and even naval standards.
The first kingdoms to emerge within the area were the many, city-state akin settlements that derived from the Southern Ochrani migrations, known in antiquity as the Mijaham Kingdoms. These states were small, primarily coastal entities on the northernmost island of Nahkarain that trace their earliest establishment to 1300 BC, with the modern day city of Pasuruin Poi hosting evidence of settlement traced through clay pottery and soil patterns marking the cultivation of rice and taro for centuries. Many of these kingdoms often consumned and lost one another, yet in record, seemed to keep relatively similar familial sturctures of inherited power, with commonplace modern surnames belonging to the more power familial legacies of this period expanding their identity in a clan-akin lineage of land ownership. The Mijaham Kingdoms, in their fluctuating, imperemenant state of contest, perhaps represent the longest period of a singular dominant system in antiquity, with little major deviation occuring until the conquest of the islands by the Tahamaja many years later. As such, it is believed that the chain of the countless Mijaham city-kingdoms lasted for over two thousand years; however, given their separation from one another and system of conquest that traditionally ended in collapse, it would be difficult to classify this as a a measure of unbroken authority and empire.
In the south, the first settlements to come from Malaio settled in Orang Uslia, where the Kasalap Kingdom emerged between 1200-1100 BC as one of the first rice kingdoms of the area, with the declaration of the 'Putra Tukang' as the divine emperor of the area. This translates directly into 'last son', and is believed to have been tied to the association of the youngest son of the family to be the healthiest, and blessed with the most powerful capacity to rule. The Kasalap Kingdom was believed to have been the first to fully utilize the Bunyip in large scale agriculture, with a massive boom in the productivity of rice, taro, and lotus root, serving as primary facets of consumption for a growing population in the area. The Kasalap eventually collapsed within itself in trying to invade the Mijaham Kingdoms when the young Putra Tukang, thought to be named Yurasi Chiran, was killed in battle without any heir-apparent, and thus the Kingdom fractured as many of the Chiran name would contest the title and power, until Kasalap presence and authority was gone. Other memorable kingdoms would include the various city state identities that would emerge in the Solustheris and the Sina'Uia Peninsula, respectivelly recollected as the Sirahanag and Tireente Cities, albeit both possesed much less influence and longeitivity then the Mijaham.
The most powerful, and centralized Pre-Nusantaran entity would be the emergance of the Ayuhaya Empire, which is defined as being intricately tied to the spread, propogation, and empowerment of the N'nhivara faith. The first Pho Kun Ban, head of their dynasty, came to power in what is presumed to be 452 BC, centered in the city of Lingkod Kuranan- now modern day Tau Harimua- on the Birhanu island, where their nearly exclusive trade with the Tireente cities, as well as the emerging N'nhivaran faith, allowed for them to center themselves in wealth, authority, and a deigned religious authority, acting as propogated, 'ascendant' seats to help spread the path of ascendance to the peoples of the archipelago. It is with the rise of the Sulothin Dynasty, under Pho Kun Mahathamacha, that the first ideas of the unification of the archipelago came underway, as the Ayuhayan Empire claimed authority over the Sina'Uia peninsula, and set their sights of war against the remaining Sirihang and Mijaham city-kingdoms.

Contemporary Pulau Keramat
Pulau Keramat is a confederated oligarchial republic composed of six separate political entities - whose forms of political system and governance differ dependent on their internal constitutions - whose modern structure is derived from the Pulau Keramat Declaration in 1932 and the Dewan Emas Agreement in 1953.
Branches of Government
The nation has an intricate system to the separation of powers, with each of the member nations holding their own policies for legislative representation, especially for policies on local infrastructure, policing, housing, social services, and other sub-regional issues that are best governed at the sub-regional level. However, on a supranational level, a the executive, judicial, and various departments are governed by councils, otherwise titled Emas, that specifically ensure that at minimum, one member of each composite confederated nation are represented.
The executive branch of Pulau Keramat is governed by a hexad council known as the Dewan Emas, whose acquistion of power is determined by a two-stage period, and is staggered to ensure that only one member of the Dewan Emas is ever under electoral examination and review at any given time, with specific language developed in the instance of the untimely death of a Councilmember.
The first stage is inspired in part by the appointive procedures of the Daitoa republic, in which a rigorous and continuously developing set of civil examinations is undertaken, and a policy of expulsion from electoral viability for the current year is determined by a percentage score threshold.z
Following this, a supranational series of elections is held that allows the full of the nation to vote for the candidates that are considered valid to run by the civil examination period. These elections are held with ranked-choice voting tabulation, and are not separated by partisanship, with much scrutiny being held against the hosting and ensurance of primary partisan elections as a potential inhibition to full voting opportunity and freedom of candidate choice.
The Dewan Emas is generally considered as a strong, yet institutionally checked, executive branch, especially given the level of internal diffusion of power into six separate individuals. The Dewan Emas oversees all international affairs, with delegation of specific tasks to departmental councils for the sake of the execution of policy decisions, as well as formulation and presentation of policy to be voted upon. In the case where a vote is tied between the Dewan Emas, the most pertinent sub-council, as decided by legislative precedent and origin of submission of aforementioned policy, will cast their own vote to break said tie.
The Dewan Emas is also responsible for the creation, dissolution, and appointment of various councils that serve as departments for the purpose of the delegation of authority and decision making of various national concerns. While these councils are beholden to secure the representation of, at minimum, one individual from each of the confederate nations, each council hosts a seventh seat, where an individual is chosen to the position irrespective of their confederate origins. Those appointed to these councils are done so purely by the Dewan Emas, yet qualification for this position is also determined by a series of civil examination, crafted by an anonymous board of former membership.
The Angkatan Emas is the council that facilitates policy and action concerning military affairs, veterans affairs, immigration and national security policy. The Angkatan Emas is most recognized for being the body that facilitates transnational naval bases in their funding, development, and operations. Currently, the Angkatan Emas has its own subcommitties dedicated to the bases in Ankat, Kajera, Pulacan, and Tsurushima.
The Ruamah Emas is the council that facilitates policy and action concerning health and human services, housing and urban development, transportation, and agricultural policy. A majority of the Ruamah Emas works primarily on iinfrastructural development and improvement.
The Akajarah Emas is the council that facilitates policy and action concerning energy, education, labor, and commercial policy. The Akajarah Emas is most recognized for being the source of government appointed members of the Vespanian Exchange Institute, given the body holding pertinent authority over financial movement within and throughout the archipelago.
The Budaya Emas is the council that facilitates policy and action concerning culture, conservation, and interregional affairs. The Budaya Emas is institutionally tied to the Association of Ozeros Nations, with its membership most often drawn from multiethnic individuals whose understanding and familiarity with neighboring nations can also be drawn from person-to-person experience and inheritance.
